NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE A — THE COMPANY AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
The interim information contained herein with respect to the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 and the period from September 25, 1996 (inception) through June 30, 2012 has not been audited but was prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and instructions for Form 10-Q. Accordingly, the condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for financial statements. Included are ordinary adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial information for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 and since inception. The results are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the entire year. Certain amounts in the prior year consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.
Torvec, Inc. was incorporated as a New York business corporation on September 25, 1996. Upon its incorporation, the Company acquired numerous patents, inventions and know-how created by Vernon E. Gleasman and his sons, James and Keith Gleasman, a family with more than fifty years of experience in the automotive industry. Since its inception, the Company has endeavored to design, develop, build and commercialize its automotive and powertrain technology portfolio.  We have not yet had any significant revenue-producing operations and, as such, we are a development stage entity.  The Company currently is focusing its commercialization strategies on the following technologies: the IsoTorque® differential and the Torvec hydraulic pump.

For the period from September 1996 (inception) through June 30, 2012, we have accumulated a deficit of $61,463,000.  At June 30, 2012 we have stockholders’ equity of $4,578,000, current liabilities of $543,000 and working capital of $4,335,000. We have been dependent upon equity financing and advances from stockholders to meet our obligations and sustain operations.  In September 2011, we raised $6,500,000 in gross proceeds through a private placement of a new class of preferred stock.  The proceeds from this transaction are being used to support the ongoing development and marketing of our core technologies and product initiatives.  Presently, we anticipate that our operating cash requirements for the full year of 2012 will be in the range of approximately $2,000,000.  In addition, we are expecting to spend approximately $200,000 on capital expenditures for the development of in-house testing equipment and approximately $100,000 on payments to reduce notes payable balances during the full year of 2012.  We believe that based upon our current cash position and the current outlook for our business operations, we have sufficient cash to continue operations through June 30, 2013.
 
As used in this quarterly report, unless otherwise indicated, the terms “we”, “our”, “us” and “the Company” refer to Torvec, Inc.


NOTE B — SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Consolidation: The financial statements include the accounts of the Company, our wholly-owned subsidiary Iso-Torque Corporation, our majority-owned subsidiary, Ice Surface Development, Inc. (56% owned at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011), and our majority-owned joint venture, Torvec China, LLC, (60% ownership interest at June 30, 2012).  As of June 30, 2012, each of the subsidiaries and the joint venture are non-operational.  During the first half of 2012, we dissolved Creative Performance Consultants Inc. and Variable Gear LLC.  Except for Iso-Torque Corporation, we are in the process of dissolving the other entities.  All material intercompany transactions and account balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Such estimates are used in valuing the useful lives of any intangible assets and the future realizable value of such assets. These estimates are subject to a high degree of judgment and potential change. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Reclassifications: Certain reclassifications have been made to prior year balances to conform to the current year’s presentation.

Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash and cash equivalents may include time deposits, certificates of deposit, and highly liquid debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less. We maintain cash and cash equivalents at financial institutions which periodically may exceed federally insured amounts.

Accounts Receivable: We carry our accounts receivable at invoice amount less an allowance for doubtful accounts.  On a periodic basis, we evaluate our accounts receivable and establish an allowance for doubtful accounts, based on a history of past write-offs and collections and current credit conditions.  We do not accrue interest on past due invoices.  There was $0 allowance for doubtful accounts as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, as determined by management.

Property and Equipment: Property and equipment are stated at cost.  Estimated useful lives are as follows:
 
Office Equipment and Software (years)   3  – 7
Leasehold Improvements     Lesser of useful life or lease term
Shop Equipment (years)     7  
Transportation Equipment (years)     7  
 
Depreciation and amortization are computed using the straight-line method.  Betterments, renewals and extraordinary repairs that extend the life of the assets are capitalized.  Other repairs and maintenance costs are expensed when incurred. When disposed, the cost and accumulated depreciation applicable to assets retired are removed from the accounts and the gain or loss on disposition is recognized in operating income (expense).  Depreciation and amortization expense for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 amounted to $19,000 and $12,000, respectively.  Depreciation and amortization expense for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 amounted to $35,000 and $31,000, respectively.

Whenever events or circumstances indicate, our long-lived assets, including any intangible assets with finite useful lives, are tested for impairment by using the estimated future cash flows directly associated with, and that are expected to arise as a direct result of, the use of the assets. If the carrying amount exceeds the estimated undiscounted cash flows, an impairment may be indicated. The carrying amount is then compared to the estimated discounted cash flows, and if there is an excess, such amount is recorded as an impairment.  During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we recorded $0 in impairment charges.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments: As defined by U.S. GAAP, fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.  All assets and liabilities are required to be measured and reported on a fair value basis.  A hierarchy for ranking the quality and reliability of the information is used to determine fair values.  Assets and liabilities carried at fair value will be classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:

Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Observable market based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.

The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements).

The FASB’s (Financial Accounting Standards Board) guidance for the disclosure about fair value of financial instruments requires disclosure of an estimate of the fair value of certain financial instruments. The fair value of financial instruments pursuant to FASB’s guidance for the disclosure about fair value of financial instruments approximated their carrying values at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.  The carrying amount of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximates their fair value due to their short maturity.  The carrying amount of notes payable approximates fair value because stated or implied interest rates approximate current interest rates that are available for debt with similar terms.

Revenue Recognition: Our terms provide that customers are obligated to pay for products sold to them within a specified number of days from the date that title to the products is transferred to the customers. Our standard terms are typically net 30 days. We recognize revenue when transfer of title occurs, risk of ownership passes to a customer at the time of shipment or delivery depending on the terms of the agreement with a particular customer and collection is reasonably assured. The sale price of our products is substantially fixed and determinable at the date of the sale based upon purchase orders generated by a customer and accepted by us.

We occasionally enter into prototype development contracts with customers.  In such cases, revenue is recognized using either (a) the proportional effort method based on the relationship of costs incurred to date to the total estimated cost to complete a contract, or (b) where appropriate, the milestone method, if milestones are clearly identifiable and substantive.  In January 2011, we adopted FASB Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2010-17, “Revenue Recognition — Milestone Method (Topic 605): Milestone Method of Revenue Recognition — a consensus of the FASB EITF”. The adoption of this pronouncement did not have a significant impact on our financial statements.

During the first quarter of 2011, we entered into a prototype development agreement to design, build and integrate our IsoTorque differential into the product of a customer for total consideration of $120,000.  Milestones include completion of design, manufacturing of a prototype, and installation / integration of the prototype. The payment required for each milestone was considered to be substantive based on the fact that performance required by us in order to achieve the milestone enhanced the value of the item delivered and is reasonable in relation to all of the deliverables. The first milestone consisted of completion and delivery of the design for the prototype, which was completed and delivered during the first quarter of 2011 and resulted in the recognition of revenue in the amount of $30,000, as well as the related costs incurred to complete this milestone.  The second milestone consisted of the manufacture and delivery of two prototype differentials to our customer, which was completed in March 2012 and resulted in the recognition of revenue in the amount of an additional $60,000, as well as the related costs incurred to complete this milestone.  Further revenue will be recognized, as well as related costs, upon reaching other milestones defined in the contract.

Research and Development and Patents: Research and development costs and patent expenses are charged to operations as incurred. Research and development includes personnel-related costs, materials and supplies, depreciation, consulting services, and amortization of the Ice technology. Depreciation expense for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 that was charged to research and development was $7,000 and $4,000, respectively. Depreciation expense for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 that was charged to research and development was $12,000 and $10,000, respectively.

Patent costs for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 amounted to $59,000 and $60,000, respectively, and are included in General and Administrative expenses. Patent costs for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 amounted to $102,000 and $79,000, respectively, and are included in General and Administrative expenses.

Stock-based Compensation: ASC 718-10 requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized as compensation expense over the service period (generally the vesting period) in the consolidated financial statements based on their fair values on the grant date. Under the modified prospective method that we adopted, awards that were granted, modified, or settled on or after January 1, 2006 are measured and accounted for in accordance with ASC 718-10. Unvested equity-classified awards that were granted prior to January 1, 2006 will continue to be accounted for in accordance with ASC 718-10, except that the grant date fair value of all awards are recognized in the results of operations over the remaining vesting periods. The impact of forfeitures that may occur prior to vesting is also estimated and considered in the amount recognized. In addition, the realization of tax benefits in excess of amounts recognized for financial reporting purposes will be recognized as a financing activity in accordance with ASC 718-10.

No tax benefits were attributed to the stock-based compensation expense because a valuation allowance was maintained for substantially all net deferred tax assets. We elected to adopt the alternative method of calculating the historical pool of windfall tax benefits as permitted by ASC 718-10-65 (previously known as: FASB Staff Position (FSP) No. SFAS 123(R)-c, “Transition Election Related to Accounting for the Tax Effects of Share-Based Payment Awards”). This is a simplified method to determine the pool of windfall tax benefits that is used in determining the tax effects of stock compensation in the results of operations and cash flow reporting for awards that were outstanding as of the adoption of ASC 718-10.

Income Taxes: We account for income taxes using the asset and liability method, the objective of which is to establish deferred tax assets and liabilities for the temporary differences between the financial reporting and the tax bases of our assets and liabilities at enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when such amounts are realized or settled.  A valuation allowance related to deferred tax assets is recorded when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  We adopted FASB ASC 740-10 relating to “Accounting for uncertainty in income taxes” on January 1, 2008.  As a result of the implementation of FASB ASC 740-10, we recognized no adjustment for uncertain tax positions. As of June 30, 2012, we have not recognized an increase or decrease to reserves for uncertain tax positions nor have we accrued interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions. The tax years 2008 through 2011 remain open to examination by the federal and state tax jurisdictions to which we are subject.

Earnings / Loss per Common Share: FASB’s ASC 260-10 ( Previously known as: FASB Statement 128, “Earnings Per Share”) requires the presentation of basic earnings per share, which is based on weighted average common stock outstanding, and dilutive earnings per share, which gives effect to options, warrants and convertible securities in periods when they are dilutive. At June 30, 2012 and 2011, we excluded 28,945,435 and 10,059,199 potential common shares, respectively, relating to convertible preferred stock, options and warrants outstanding from the diluted net loss per common share calculation because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive. In addition, we excluded 625,000 warrants from the diluted net loss per common share calculation at June 30, 2012 and 2011 as the conditions for their vesting are not time-based.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements: In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income”.  ASU No. 2011-05 requires entities to present the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements of net income and other comprehensive income.  ASU No. 2011-05 eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in shareholders’ equity.  ASU No. 2011-05 does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income.  Furthermore, in December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-12 “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05.” This update defers the effective date of ASU No. 2011-05’s requirement to present on the face of the financial statements reclassification adjustments for each component of accumulated other comprehensive income in both net income and other comprehensive income so that the FASB can reconsider those requirements during calendar 2012. These standards were effective retrospectively for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. Our adoption of these standards during the first quarter of 2012 did not have a significant impact on our financial statements, as we currently do not have any adjustments to net income in the determination of such comprehensive income.

NOTE C — RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

[1] Effective January 1, 2008, the board instituted a compensation plan for James Gleasman, our chief executive officer, and Keith Gleasman, our president, each of whom were major shareholders and co-founders of the Company.  The compensation plan was designed to compensate each of them for services performed, and inventions and know-how transferred to us, at the rate of $300,000 per year. Actual payment of this compensation, or any portion thereof, was conditioned upon a determination by the board that we had the requisite cash to make payment, after the complete funding of all ongoing Company projects.

We did not have the requisite cash available to pay the Gleasmans’ compensation under this arrangement from January 1, 2008 through August 17, 2009, the date on which each of the Gleasmans waived all of his rights and interest in and to the board-created compensation plan, including all of his rights and interest in and to the amount(s) under the plan accrued to such date. As a result of such waiver, of the $942,000 accrued under the plan at June 30, 2009, $900,000 was reclassified to equity as a contribution of services and $42,000 accrued under the plan for payroll taxes was recorded as a reduction to general and administrative expenses in the quarter ended June 30, 2009.

For subsequent periods, there had not been a compensation plan in place for the Gleasmans.  However, due to the significance of their ownership interest at the time and their influence within the Company, we were required to record the estimated value of each of the Gleasman’s services rendered to us (estimated at $300,000 each per annum) as a contribution of services in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and we allocated the amount of such contribution between research and development expenses and general and administrative expenses, based upon management’s estimate of the Gleasmans’ time allocation.  Effective March 14, 2010, James Gleasman retired as our chief executive officer, interim chief financial officer and as a member of the board of directors.  As of October 1, 2011 following our September 2011 private placement, we reassessed the estimated value of the services we were receiving from Keith Gleasman as a result of the reduction of his overall ownership interest, and reduced the amount we were recording for his contribution for shareholder services to the equivalent of $100,000 per annum.  On January 9, 2012, the board approved a base salary for Keith Gleasman of $100,000 per annum to be effective as of January 1, 2012.  The board’s decision was based upon the recommendation of our chief executive officer and our Governance and Compensation Committee, composed entirely of independent directors.

Effective as of January 1, 2012, we no longer imputed an expense related to contributed shareholder services.  For the three month period ended June 30, 2011, we recorded a total expense for contributed shareholder services of $75,000, and we allocated $25,000 to research and development expense and $50,000 to general and administrative expense.  For the six month period ended June 30, 2011, we recorded a total expense for contributed shareholder services of $150,000, and we allocated $50,000 to research and development expense and $100,000 to general and administrative expense.

[2] On September 14, 2007, we moved our executive offices from Pittsford, New York to Rochester, New York, which includes both a manufacturing and executive office facility. The Rochester facility is owned by a partnership, with which Asher J. Flaum, a Company director, is associated.  On April 28, 2008, our board of directors approved the terms of a lease and such lease was executed on April 29, 2008. (See Note G[1].)

[3] On December 13, 2010, we executed a consultant agreement with a director to provide consulting services to us at a rate of $200 per hour. Pursuant to the agreement, we also agreed to pay the consultant an incentive fee equal to $10,000 or proportionate part thereof for each $1,000,000 of revenue or proportionate part thereof actually received by us for a period of five years, provided the definitive agreement with the third party results from the material efforts of the consultant.  During the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we recorded an expense of $0 for services rendered in relation to this agreement.  During the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we recorded an expense of $2,000 and $0, respectively, for services rendered in relation to this agreement.

[4] On September 23, 2011, we sold and issued a total of 16,250,000 shares of Series C Voting Convertible Preferred Stock and warrants to purchase 1,625,000 shares of our common stock in a private placement transaction, generating gross proceeds of $6,500,000.  Three members of our board of directors and one executive officer participated in the transaction, acquiring 687,500 preferred shares and associated warrants for $275,000 (approximately 4.2 percent of the entire transaction).  (See Note F[2](c).)

[5] Effective on March 27, 2012, we hired Dr. William Mark McVea as our Chief Technology Officer.  Prior to joining the Company, Dr. McVea provided us with consulting services through KBE+, Inc., a group of consulting engineers engaged in the design and development of gear trains and power transmission devices, and of which Dr. McVea was the chief engineer and president.  At June 30, 2012, we had an outstanding liability of $0 to KBE+, Inc. related to consulting services provided during the first quarter of 2012.

On April 30, 2012, we purchased various test equipment, office furniture, and supplies from KBE+, Inc. for a total of $162,500.  We have entered into a financing agreement with KBE+, Inc., whereby we will pay KBE+, Inc. over 24 months in equal monthly installments of approximately $6,800, beginning on May 1, 2012.  Based on an imputed interest rate of approximately 5%, the initial principal of the note was approximately $154,000, and as of June 30, 2012, the outstanding principal on the note was approximately $142,000.  Interest expense pertaining to this note amounted to approximately $1,000 for the six month period ended June 30, 2012.

In May 2012, we purchased certain additional testing tools and supplies from KBE+, Inc. for approximately $5,700.  At June 30, 2012, we had an outstanding payable of approximately $5,200 to KBE+, Inc. related to this purchase.

NOTE F — STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

[1] Private Placements of Common Stock

During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we issued 0 shares of common stock as a result of private placement transactions.  For the twelve month period ended December 31, 2011, we issued 0 shares of common stock as a result of private placement transactions.

[2] Preferred Stock

On August 30, 2000, we amended our certificate of incorporation to permit the Company to issue up to 100,000,000 shares of $.01 par value preferred stock. Under the amendment, the board of directors has the authority to allocate these shares into as many separate classes of preferred as it deems appropriate and with respect to each class, designate the number of preferred shares issuable and the relative rights, preferences, seniority with respect to other classes and to our common stock and any limitations and/or restrictions that may be applicable without obtaining shareholder approval.

(a) Class A Preferred Stock
 
In March 2002, our board designated the first series of preferred shares, authorizing the issuance of up to 3,300,000 Class A Non-Voting Cumulative Convertible Preferred Shares. Each Class A Preferred Share is convertible after a one year holding period, at the holder’s election, into one share of our common stock. The conversion rate is subject to adjustment in the event of the issuance of our common stock as a dividend or distribution and in the case of the subdivision or combination of our common stock. The Class A Preferred has no voting rights, except with respect to matters directly impacting upon the rights and privileges accorded to such Class.

The holders of the Class A Preferred are entitled to receive cumulative preferential dividends in the amount of $.40 per share of Class A Preferred for each annual dividend period as well as upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the company.

Dividends payable on the Class A Preferred will be paid in cash out of any funds legally available for the payment of dividends or, in the discretion of the board, will be paid in Class A Preferred at a rate of 1 share of Class A Preferred for each $4.00 of dividends.

If dividends are paid in shares of Class A Preferred, such dividend shares are not entitled to accumulate additional dividends and themselves may be converted into the common stock of the Company on a one for one basis. Holders of Class A Preferred are permitted to request that dividends payable in Class A Preferred be immediately converted into shares of our common stock.  At times, our board may elect to settle the dividends through the issuance of common stock in lieu of cash. The number of shares of common stock issued is based on the market price of our stock at the time of the conversion.

Accumulated and unpaid dividends on the Class A Preferred will not bear interest. Class A Preferred shares are also entitled to participate pro rata in dividends declared and/or distributions made with respect to all classes of our outstanding equity.

We may, in the absolute discretion of our board, redeem at any time and from time to time from any source of funds legally available any and all of the outstanding Class A Preferred at the redemption price of $4.00 per Class A Preferred, plus all unpaid accumulated dividends payable with respect to each Class A Preferred Share.

Since its designation in March 2002, we have sold an aggregate 765,512 shares of Class A Preferred for proceeds of approximately $3,062,000.  We sold 0 Class A Preferred shares during the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and the year ended December 31, 2011.

Since its designation in March 2002, Class A Preferred shareholders have converted an aggregate 189,750 Class A Preferred into our common stock (on a one to one basis) through June 30, 2012, with 0 Class A Preferred shares converted in each of the three and six month periods ending June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

For the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, we settled 0 Class A Preferred dividends.  For the three month period ended June 30, 2011, we settled 0 Class A Preferred dividends.  For the six month period ended June 30, 2011, we settled 0 Class A Preferred dividends, although holders converted 5,421 shares of Class A Preferred (that resulted from previous dividend issuances) into 5,421 shares of common stock.  Since its inception in March 2002 through June 30, 2012, we have settled an aggregate Class A Preferred dividend amounting to approximately $242,000 through the issuance of 11,339 Class A Preferred shares and 100,924 common shares.

At June 30, 2012, there were 587,101 outstanding shares of Class A Preferred stock, of which 11,339 shares resulted from the settlement of dividends due to conversion, and those shares no longer accrue dividends.  The value of dividends payable upon the conversion of the remaining 575,762 outstanding shares of Class A Preferred stock amounted to approximately $1,673,000 at June 30, 2012.  In the event of a liquidation, Class A Preferred shareholders have a liquidation preference with respect to all accumulated and unsettled dividends.  The value of the Class A Preferred shareholders’ liquidation preference was approximately $1,673,000 and $1,558,000 at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  In the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, unpaid accumulated dividends on the Class A Preferred are payable in Class A Preferred at a rate of 1 share of Class A Preferred for each $4.00 of dividends.
 
(b) Class B Preferred Stock
 
In September 2004, the board created a second series of preferred stock by authorizing the issuance of up to 300,000 Class B Non-Voting, Cumulative Convertible Preferred Shares to fund the business operations of Iso-Torque Corporation, an entity incorporated to separately commercialize our IsoTorque differential technology.

Each Class B Preferred Share is convertible after a one year holding period, at the holder’s election, into one share of our common stock or one share of the common stock of IsoTorque Corporation. The conversion rate is subject to adjustment in the event of the issuance of the Company’s or IsoTorque Corporation’s  common stock as a dividend or distribution and in the case of the subdivision or combination of such common stock. The Class B Preferred has no voting rights, except with respect to matters directly impacting upon the rights and privileges accorded to such Class.

Subject to the dividend rights and privileges of our Class A Preferred, the holders of the Class B Preferred are entitled to receive cumulative preferential dividends in the amount of $.50 per share of Class B Preferred for each annual dividend period as well as upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the company.

Dividends payable on the Class B Preferred will be paid in cash out of any funds legally available for the payment of dividends or, in the discretion of the board, will be paid in Class B Preferred at a rate of 1 share of Class B Preferred for each $5.00 of dividends.

If dividends are paid in shares of Class B Preferred, such dividend shares are not entitled to accumulate additional dividends and themselves may be converted into the common stock of the company on a one for one basis. Holders of Class B Preferred are permitted to request that dividends payable in Class B Preferred be immediately converted into shares of our common stock.

Accumulated and unpaid dividends on the Class B Preferred will not bear interest. Class B Preferred shares are also entitled to participate pro rata in dividends declared and/or distributions made with respect to all classes of our outstanding equity.

We may, in the absolute discretion of our board, redeem at any time and from time to time from any source of funds legally available any and all of the outstanding Class B Preferred at the redemption price of $5.00 per Class B Preferred, plus all unpaid accumulated dividends payable with respect to each Class B Preferred Share.

Since its designation in September 2004, we have sold an aggregate 97,500 Class B Preferred in a number of private placements for proceeds of approximately $487,500.  We sold 0 Class B Preferred shares during the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

Since its designation, Class B Preferred shareholders have converted an aggregate 30,000 Class B Preferred into our common stock (on a one to one basis) through June 30, 2012.  During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, shareholders converted 10,000 and 10,000 Class B Preferred shares into our common stock, respectively.  During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011, we converted 0 Class B Preferred shares into our common stock.

Through June 30, 2012, we have issued 0 Class B Preferred shares to converting Class B Preferred shareholders as a dividend.

Depending upon our cash position, from time to time we may request that a converting preferred shareholder receiving dividends in cash consent to receive shares of restricted common stock in lieu thereof. During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, we issued 5,328 shares of restricted common stock in payment of Class B dividends amounting to approximately $27,000.  Through June 30, 2012, we have issued 35,431 restricted common shares in payment of Class B dividends amounting to approximately $51,000.

At June 30, 2012, dividends payable upon the conversion of 67,500 outstanding shares of Class B Preferred amounted to approximately $235,000.   In the event of a liquidation, Class B Preferred shareholders have a liquidation preference with respect to all accumulated and unsettled dividends.  The value of the Class B Preferred shareholders’ liquidation preference was $235,000 and $243,000 at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  In the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, unpaid accumulated dividends on the Class B Preferred are payable in Class B Preferred at a rate of 1 share of Class B Preferred for each $5.00 of dividends.
 
(c) Class C Preferred Stock
 
In September 2011, the board of directors authorized, and Class A Preferred and Class B Preferred shareholders approved, a third series of preferred stock, namely 16,250,000 shares of Class C Voting Convertible Preferred Stock.  On September 23, 2011, we sold and issued a total of 16,250,000 shares of Series C Voting Convertible Preferred Stock and warrants to purchase 1,625,000 shares of our common stock in a private placement transaction, generating gross proceeds of $6,500,000.  Direct expenses of approximately $106,000 pertaining to the transaction, consisting of primarily external legal costs, were incurred, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $6,394,000.

Each Class C Preferred share is convertible, at the holder’s election, into one share of our common stock.  The conversion rate is subject to adjustment in the event of the issuance of common stock as a dividend or distribution, and the subdivision or combination of the outstanding common stock.

The Class C Preferred shares have a liquidation preference at their stated value per share of $0.40 that is senior to our common stock, and the Company’s Class A Non-Voting Cumulative Convertible Preferred Shares and Class B Non-Voting Cumulative Convertible Preferred Shares.  The liquidation preference is payable upon a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary, or upon a deemed liquidation of the Company.

The Class C Preferred shares have no right to receive dividends and have no redemption right. The Class C Preferred shares vote with the common stock on an as-converted basis.
 
The associated warrants have a ten (10) year term and are immediately exercisable for 1,625,000 shares of common stock.  The warrants are exercisable, at the holder’s election, for shares of the Company’s common stock in either a cash or cashless exercise. The warrants have an exercise price equal to the greater of (i) $0.01 or (ii) eighty percent (80%) of the volume weighted average sale price per share of our common stock during the ten (10) consecutive trading days immediately preceding the notice of exercise.  The number of warrants and exercise price are subject to adjustment in the event of the issuance of common stock as a dividend or distribution, and the subdivision or combination of the outstanding common stock.  We estimated a value of $.50 per warrant, or a total of approximately $812,000, using a weighted average of assigned probabilities for various gain scenarios at certain price points based on expected volatility.  As a result of the combined issuance of the Class C Preferred stock with the associated warrants, we reflected a non-cash distribution on the Class C Preferred shares for the warrants issued in our consolidated statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 2011.  (See Note F[5](o).)

In conjunction with the issuance of the 16,250,000 shares of Class C Preferred stock, we computed the value of the non-cash beneficial conversion feature associated with the right to convert the shares into common stock on a one-for-one basis.  We compared the fair value of our common stock on the date of issuance with the effective conversion price after allocation of the proceeds to the related warrants, and determined that the value of the non-cash beneficial conversion feature is approximately $5,582,000, which was reflected in our consolidated statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 2011 as an adjustment to arrive at the net loss attributable to common stockholders.  (See Note F[5](o).)

During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, Class C Preferred shareholders have converted 0 shares of Class C Preferred into common stock.  At June 30, 2012, there were 16,250,000 shares of Preferred C stock outstanding.  The value of the Class C Preferred shareholders’ liquidation preference was $6,500,000 at June 30, 2012.

[3] Business Consultants Stock Plan

In June 1999, we adopted the Business Consultants Stock Plan (the “Stock Plan”). The Stock Plan, as amended, provides for the issuance of up to 15,000,000 registered common shares to be awarded from time to time to officers, directors, employees and consultants in exchange for business, financial, legal, accounting, engineering, research and development, technical, governmental relations and other similar services.

Share issuances under the Stock Plan are valued generally on the date immediately prior to the date of issuance, except for shares issued to pay invoices which are valued as of the invoice date and except for shares issued under the Nonmanagement Directors Plan which are valued as of the end of each month effective February 17, 2009.

During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011, there were 0 issuances of stock under the Stock Plan.

On September 18, 2011, the board of directors voted to terminate the Business Consultants Stock Plan, effective immediately.  As of September 18, 2011, a total of 10,988,283 shares had been issued under the Business Consultants Stock Plan.  On October 7, 2011, we filed a Form S-8 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to deregister the remaining 4,011,717 shares that were available for future issuance.

[4] Stock Options

(a) 1998  Stock Option Plan
 
In December 1997, our board approved a Stock Option Plan (the “1998 Plan”) which provided for the granting of up to 2,000,000 shares of common stock, pursuant to which officers, directors, key employees and key consultants/advisors are eligible to receive incentive, nonqualified or reload stock options which plan was ratified by the shareholders on May 28, 1998. Options granted under the 1998 Plan are exercisable for a period of up to 10 years from date of grant at an exercise price which is not less than the fair value on date of grant, except that the exercise period of options granted to a stockholder owning more than 10% of the outstanding capital stock may not exceed five years and their exercise price may not be less than 110% of the fair value of the common stock at date of grant. Options may vest over five years.

By its terms, our 1998 Plan terminated as to the grant of future options on May 27, 2008. Consequently, no additional stock options will be granted under the 1998 Plan, although outstanding options remain available for exercise in accordance with their terms. There were 0 options granted or exercised under the 1998 Plan during the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

Through June 30, 2012, a total of 1,823,895 stock options had been granted under the 1998 Plan, 0 stock options had been exercised, and 1,282,047 stock options have expired.  As of June 30, 2012, there were 541,848 outstanding stock options under the 1998 Plan, all of which were fully vested.  The following table summarizes information relating to stock options outstanding under the 1998 Plan at June 30, 2012:

As of June 30, 2012, we had $0 unrecognized stock compensation related to unvested awards under the 1998 Plan.

(b) 2011 Stock Option Plan
 
On November 3, 2010, the board adopted, and on January 27, 2011 the shareholders approved, the 2011 Stock Option Plan (“2011 Plan”)  which provides for the grant of up to 3,000,000 common stock options to provide equity incentives to directors, officers, employees and consultants. Two types of options may be granted under the 2011 Plan: non-qualified options and incentive options.

Non-qualified options may be granted to our officers, directors, employees and outside consultants. Incentive options may be granted only to our employees, including officers and directors who are also employees. In the case of non-qualified options, the exercise price may be less than the fair market value of our stock on the date of grant. In the case of incentive options, the exercise price may not be less than such fair market value and in the case of an employee who owns more than 10% of our common stock, the exercise price may not be less than 110% of such market price. Options generally are exercisable for ten years from the date of grant, except that the exercise period for an incentive option granted to an employee who owns more than 10% of our stock may not be greater than five years.

Effective January 28, 2011, our board of directors appointed Wesley K. Clark as a member of the board of directors. Our board voted to grant Gen. Clark a non-qualified stock option for 250,000 common shares under the 2011 Plan, effective January 28, 2011 and exercisable at $.90 per share. The option is conditioned upon Gen. Clark serving as a director and vests in four tranches of 25% of the total granted shares on each of the four annual anniversary dates of January 28, 2011.  The original terms of the option required the optionee to exercise each tranche within two and one-half months following the calendar year in which the tranche vests or lose the tranche.  However, on March 20, 2012, the board approved a modification of these options to provide for a 10 year term with an expiration date of January 28, 2021, and this modification was subsequently approved by shareholders at the Company’s annual meeting on June 14, 2012.  We used the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to value the cost of this modification at approximately $56,000, which is being recognized ratably over the vesting periods of the respective tranches.

Our board also voted to grant Gen. Clark a non-qualified stock option for 25,000 common shares under the 2011 Plan, effective January 28, 2011 and exercisable at $.90 per share. This 25,000 share option vested immediately and is exercisable for 10 years.

In the fourth quarter of 2011, we granted incentive stock options to certain of our engineering employees for 405,000 common shares at an exercise price of $1.14 per share with a ten year term and a three year vesting period.  These 405,000 options were established to replace an equivalent number of previously issued and outstanding options and warrants having an exercise of price of $5.00 per share. As the new options vest, an equal number of the previously issued options and warrants will be cancelled.  The expense related to these replacement options amounts to the difference between the fair value of the replacement options on the date of grant and the fair value of the options / warrants that they will replace on the same date.  We used the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to value the cost of these replacement options at approximately $117,000, which is being recognized ratably over the vesting period of the new options.

In March 2012, we granted an incentive stock option to our new chief technology officer to acquire 250,000 common shares at an exercise price of $.82 per share, exercisable for 10 years.  The option vests in four tranches of 25% of the total granted shares on each of the four annual anniversary dates from the initial date of grant.

During the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we granted 1,000 and 0 stock options under the 2011 Plan, respectively, and 0 options expired or were exercised. During the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we granted 251,000 and 276,000 stock options under the 2011 Plan, respectively, and 0 options expired or were exercised. As of June 30, 2012, there were 932,000 stock options outstanding under the 2011 Plan, 87,750 of which were vested.  At June 30, 2012, there were 2,068,000 options remaining available for future grant under the 2011 Plan.

(c) Non-Plan Options
 
During the first quarter of 2011, we granted a total of 1,350,000 non-plan stock options.  On January 27, 2011, our shareholders approved the issuance of stock options to 5 directors each for 250,000 common shares, and the issuance of stock options to a consultant acting in the capacity as a special advisor to the board for 100,000 common shares, exercisable at $.90 per common share. Each option is conditioned upon the optionee serving as a director or consultant and vests in four tranches of 25% of the total granted shares on each of the four annual anniversary dates of January 27, 2011. The original terms of the options required the optionee to exercise each tranche within two and one-half months following the calendar year in which the tranche vests or lose the tranche.  However, on March 20, 2012, the board approved a modification of these options to provide for a 10 year term with a uniform expiration date of January 27, 2021, and this modification was subsequently approved by shareholders at the Company’s annual meeting on June 14, 2012.  We used the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to value the cost of this modification at approximately $304,000, which is being recognized ratably over the vesting periods of the respective tranches.

During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, there were 0 non-plan stock options granted.

As of June 30, 2012, there were a total of 7,260,000 non-plan options outstanding, of which 3,972,500 were fully vested.  During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, 0 and 337,500 non-plan stock options became vested, and 0 were exercised or cancelled.  During the comparable three and six month periods in 2011, 0 non-plan stock options became vested and 0 were exercised or cancelled.

For the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we recorded compensation expense of $382,000 and $339,000, respectively, related to the non-Plan options.  For the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we recorded compensation expense of $621,000 and $583,000, respectively, related to the non-Plan options.

(d) Summary
 
For the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, compensation cost related to all stock options amounted to $480,000 and $379,000, respectively.  For the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, compensation cost related to all stock options amounted to $765,000 and $683,000, respectively.  As of June 30, 2012, there was $1,794,000 of total unrecognized compensation costs related to outstanding stock options, which are expected to be recognized over the next 4 years.

The weighted average grant-date fair value of all stock options granted during the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $.74 and $1.58 per share, respectively. The total grant date fair value of all stock options vested during the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was approximately $605,000 and $33,000, respectively.

The fair value of each option granted during the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted average assumptions:

The average risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. treasury security rate in effect as of the grant date. We determined expected volatility using the historical closing stock price. The expected life was generally determined using the simplified method as we do not believe we have sufficient historical stock option exercise experience on which to base the expected term.

(b)
On April 15, 2002, we issued 1,000,000 warrants at prices ranging from $.30 to $.75 to our then chairman of the board of directors and chief executive officer. Of the total warrants, 250,000 were exercisable at $.30, and 250,000 were exercisable at $.50 on the date the then board elected the executive to the board and named him chief executive officer. During the year ended December 31, 2002, 250,000 warrants were exercised for $.30 per share, resulting in proceeds of $75,000. During the year ended December 31, 2003, 250,000 warrants were exercised for $.50 per share, resulting in proceeds of $125,000. The remaining 500,000 warrants are exercisable upon the occurrence of a significant transaction, which includes execution by us of a binding agreement for the sale, transfer, license or assignment for value of any and/or all of our automotive technology, at $.75 per share. We will record a charge representing the fair value of the warrants when the warrants become exercisable.
   
(c)
We issued an aggregate 123,500 warrants at an exercise price of $0.01 with a ten year term to our nonmanagement directors for services rendered to the board under our Nonmanagement Directors Plan prior to its amendment on October 13, 2006. There are 0 further warrants issuable under the Plan as modified by the board of directors on October 13, 2006. An aggregate 69,000 warrants have been exercised for proceeds of $690.
   
(d)
In 2005, we issued 12,500 warrants to consultants, immediately exercisable at $0.01 per common share. During 2005 and 2006, 3,500 of these warrants were exercised. During 2010, an additional 6,000 of these warrants were exercised. The 3,000 remaining outstanding warrants have no expiration date.
   
(e)
In 2005, we issued 95,000 warrants to two engineering and administrative consultants, exercisable immediately at $5.00 per common share. During 2006, we issued an additional 100,000 warrants to these same consultants exercisable over a ten year term at $5.00 per common share, but only exercisable if there is a commercializing event as determined by the board of directors. During 2008, these warrants were cancelled and new warrants were issued to the same consultants for an aggregate 195,000 shares exercisable until 2016 at $5.00 per common share and conditioned upon the happening of a commercializing event as determined by the board.  We recorded a charge of $249,000 in 2008 to general and administrative expense. In 2010, 95,000 of the total number of 195,000 warrants issued to these consultants were modified to eliminate both the term and the commercializing event condition for exercise.  The charge related to the 2010 modification was insignificant.  In December 2011, 110,000 of these outstanding warrants were amended so that they will be cancelled in conjunction with the vesting of stock options that were issued to replace such warrants, with each option having an exercise price of $1.14 per share, and proportionate vesting on each of the succeeding anniversary dates over a three year period.  The approximately $16,000 expense related to the issuance of the stock options to replace the warrants is being amortized over the vesting period of the stock options.

(f)
During 2005, we issued 60,000 warrants to an engineering consultant exercisable immediately at $5.00 per common share and with no expiration date.

During 2006, we issued 135,849 warrants to investors along with their purchase of 162,000 Class A Preferred and 20,000 Class B Preferred, all immediately exercisable at $.01 per common share and with a ten year term. Through June 30, 2012, an aggregate of 194,599 of these warrants have been exercised for proceeds of approximately $1,258.  There were 0 warrants exercised during the six month period ended June 30, 2012.

During 2006, we issued 400,000 warrants immediately exercisable for ten years at an exercise price of $3.27 per common share to a business consultant. Effective October 15, 2010, these warrants were modified and reissued upon the mutual agreement of the parties. Effective October 15, 2010, we issued 400,000 warrants immediately exercisable at $.44 per common share for a period of ten years from the modification date.  As a result of the modification, we recorded a charge of $68,000 to general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2010.

During 2007, we issued 50,000 warrants exercisable for ten years at $5.00 per common share upon the happening of a commercializing event. The warrants were issued to a consultant who assisted us to potentially place our products in various state school bus programs. We recorded a charge of $249,000 to general and administrative expenses.
   
(m)
During 2007, we issued 100,000 warrants immediately exercisable for ten years at an exercise price of $5.00 per common share to two engineering consultants in connection with our engagement to furnish constant velocity joints to a military contractor. We recorded a charge of $401,000 to general and administrative expenses.
   
(n)
On February 17, 2010, we issued 100,000 common stock warrants exercisable for ten years at an exercise price of $2.50 per common share to an adviser. We recorded a charge of $45,000 to general and administrative expenses in the first quarter of 2010.
   
(o)
On September 23, 2011, we issued 1,625,000 common stock warrants in connection with the sale and issuance of a total of 16,250,000 shares of Series C Voting Convertible Preferred Stock in a private placement transaction, generating gross proceeds of $6,500,000.  The warrants have a ten (10) year term and are immediately exercisable for 1,625,000 shares of common stock.  The warrants are exercisable, at the holder’s election, for shares of our common stock in either a cash or cashless exercise.  The warrants have an exercise price equal to the greater of (i) $0.01 or (ii) eighty percent (80%) of the volume weighted average sale price per share of our common stock during the ten (10) consecutive trading days immediately preceding the notice of exercise.  The number of warrants and exercise price are subject to adjustment in the event of the issuance of common stock as a dividend or distribution, and the subdivision or combination of the outstanding common stock.  (See Note F[5](c).)
   
 
We typically use the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to estimate the fair value of stock-based awards.  However, for the 1,625,000 warrants issued in September 2011, the exercise price is variable based on 80% of the price of our common stock on the date of exercise.  For the valuation of these particular warrants, we used a weighted average of assigned probabilities for various gain scenarios at certain price points based on expected volatility of approximately 136% over an assumed term of five years to estimate an overall value of these warrants, which amounted to approximately $812,000, or $.50 per warrant.  These inputs are unobservable inputs based on our own assumptions used to measure the value of the instrument.  Accordingly, these warrants are classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy in accordance with FASB ASC 820.

If we terminate the executive, remove him as CFO, or a change in control of the Company occurs, the executive is entitled to 12 months’ severance pay.

[3] Consulting Agreements

Effective July 1, 2010, we engaged the services of a consulting firm to provide expertise in local, state and federal governmental relations, to advise  us  with respect to media relations, business development and in negotiating with industry representatives. We agreed to pay the consultant an annual retainer of $48,000 to be paid in quarterly installments of $12,000 beginning July 1, 2010. The agreement was for a one year term.

Effective July 1, 2010, we engaged a consultant to provide us with assistance in the development of strategic plans, financial modeling, licensing agreements, partnership agreements and general funding opportunities. We agreed to pay the consultant an annual retainer equal to $34,500 to be paid in quarterly installments of $8,625 beginning July 1, 2010. We also agreed to pay the consultant a commission equal to 4% of the value received by us from third parties introduced by or through the auspices of the consultant for a period of a minimum of 4 years beyond the initial term of the agreement. The agreement was for a two year term.

On March 31, 2011, we signed a modification agreement pursuant to which, in exchange for a one-time payment of $17,250, all of the cash obligations under these two agreements were cancelled.  The 4% commission with respect to the second agreement remains in effect through January 1, 2017.

On December 13, 2010, we executed a consultant agreement with a director to provide consulting services to us at a rate of $200 per hour. Pursuant to the agreement, we also agreed to pay the consultant an incentive fee equal to $10,000 or proportionate part thereof for each $1,000,000 of revenue or proportionate part thereof actually received by us for a period of five years, provided the definitive agreement with the third party results from the material efforts of the consultant.  During the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we recorded an expense of $0 for consulting services under the agreement.  During the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we recorded an expense of $2,100 and $0, respectively, for consulting services under the agreement.  Cumulatively, through June 30, 2012, we have recorded $2,100 of expense for services rendered in relation to this agreement.

[4] Prototype Development Agreement

On January 28, 2011, we announced that we entered into a contract with a West Virginia remanufacturer of components for the mining and associated industrial equipment industry to develop, evaluate, manufacture and sell our IsoTorque® differential technology in mining shuttle cars.  The contract calls for us to design and build a prototype IsoTorque® unit for installation in a 21 SC model mining shuttle car. The remanufacturer will pay us $120,000 for the initial development. Upon successful completion of the prototype phase, the parties have agreed that we will sell 100% of the differential requirements for all 21 SC model mining shuttle cars remanufactured by the remanufacturer on an exclusive basis. Minimum purchase requirements will be established after the first anniversary of the agreement.  During the first quarter of 2012, we recorded $60,000 in revenue upon the completion of the second milestone.  In the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, we recorded $0 and $60,000 in revenue related to this contract.  Through June 30, 2012, we have recorded a total of $90,000 in revenue associated with this agreement.

Item 2.  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

(A) Overall Business Strategy

Torvec, Inc. was incorporated as a New York business corporation on September 25, 1996. Upon its incorporation, the Company acquired numerous patents, inventions and know-how created by Vernon E. Gleasman and his sons, James and Keith Gleasman, a family with more than fifty years of experience in the automotive industry. Since its inception, we have endeavored to design, develop, build and commercialize our automotive and powertrain technology portfolio.  We have not yet had any significant revenue-producing operations and, as such, we are a development stage entity.

(B) Current Status of Business Plan and Ongoing Projects

We are continuing to make significant progress optimizing the designs and productizing our two key technologies.  The following summarizes the current status of the development efforts for our IsoTorque® differential and our Torvec hydraulic pump.

IsoTorque Differential – We believe we have completed the final design phase of the base model IsoTorque differential that will improve overall strength, durability and performance.  During the third quarter, we will be cutting the newly designed gears and assembling prototype differentials for final test.  We are then planning to be in a position to be building an inventory of rear-wheel drive differentials initially for two model platforms (for certain Corvette and Camaro models) that will be marketed and sold in the aftermarket beginning in the fourth quarter this year.  Our marketing plan has been drawn and we feel there is growth potential in the aftermarket.  In recent months, we have attended targeted trade shows where we have seen some very favorable results with the receipt of approximately 15 sales orders for IsoTorque differentials to aftermarket customers with anticipated delivery and payment in the fourth quarter.  We are also developing “shopping cart” functionality on our newly upgraded website for future customers to place orders for IsoTorque differentials.  We believe that our efforts in the aftermarket will assist our transition into the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) market by proving our performance and safety advantages in the real world.  As the base IsoTorque design is completed, we will be working to add other differential designs for additional model platforms in the aftermarket.

Following the completion of the IsoTorque for the initial entry into the aftermarket, we will be working on completing designs of front and rear-wheel drive differentials that we will test and market to certain OEMs.  We are expecting to be able to deliver prototypes for rear-wheel drive differentials to certain OEMs for them to test in specific model platforms during the second half of 2012.  We also are planning to improve upon the design of our differential for front-wheel drive applications during the second half of 2012.  We believe that this could create a very significant breakthrough in front-wheel drive technology.

Through our China sales agent, we are continuing to work to develop relationships with two prominent Chinese auto manufacturers who have expressed interest in our IsoTorque differential design.  We have established Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) that will allow us to explore opportunities that will advance our technology and products further and faster into the world’s largest market.

In addition to the automotive sector, we are continuing to market into off-highway markets such as mining and construction.  The development contract we have for a differential in a mining car application continues to move forward.  In January 2011, we contracted with a West Virginia remanufacturer of components for mining and associated industrial equipment to develop an IsoTorque differential prototype to demonstrate its feasibility to alleviate steering problems associated with mining shuttle cars.  The contract calls for us to jointly evaluate the performance and durability of the prototype units and upon successful evaluation, to build and sell IsoTorque differentials to our customer for incorporation in 21 SC mining cars it remanufactures for the mining industry.  If the prototype test is successful, the contract calls for us to furnish the remanufacturer with all of their differential requirements during the three year contract term, as mutually extended.  During the first quarter of 2012, we shipped two prototype IsoTorque differentials to our customer and we are waiting for them to be installed and tested in a vehicle, which we anticipate will begin sometime during the third quarter of 2012. Based on the results of the test installation, we anticipate that the customer will place a production order for these differentials.

Torvec Hydraulic Pump – During the summer of 2011, we completed the initial testing of our Torvec hydraulic pump at a prominent university.  From this testing, we learned a great deal about the strengths of the pump and improvements we needed to make.  Due to the change of design intent and the intended use of the pump from a light duty cycle automobile transmission application to a commercial pump, we knew in advance that there would be development changes we would have to make because of the heavy duty cycle requirement for commercial use.  However, from our testing we believe that the pump has notable advantages over existing technologies.

 
22

 
Over the past several months, we have gone through a drastic redesign to improve the overall performance of our pump while maintaining the significant advantages we have of size and weight.  We have completed the redesign phase and have placed orders with suppliers for new components to be assembled into two prototype units.  We anticipate that we will complete the assembly of the two prototypes later in the third quarter, and that these units will be tested at another high profile university early in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Based upon the test results, we are planning to begin marketing this product to potential customers beginning in the fourth quarter of 2012.  We are also working on additional patents as a result of some engineering breakthroughs in our redesign.

In the near future, U. S. Government emissions regulations for off road diesel engines will take effect.  These regulations will require diesel engines to pollute less.  To help achieve these new standards, companies are attempting to run the diesel engines and thus their hydraulic pumps at lower rotational speeds. This requires larger displacement hydraulic pumps to be installed to compensate for the decrease in rotational speed.  Among other advantages, the unique design of the Torvec hydraulic pump technology allows a larger displacement pump to fit into the same or smaller footprint of existing displacement pumps.  This enables manufacturers to keep the current equipment layout without the need for expensive modifications to accommodate larger hydraulic pumps.

Our basic plan of operation for the year ending December 31, 2012 continues to be as follows:

1) to develop and implement a strategy to sell IsoTorque differentials into the aftermarket, through both a distributor network and direct sales to end users.

2) to design, build and provide IsoTorque differentials to domestic and foreign OEMs, to engage with manufacturers in the performance and durability evaluation of our IsoTorque in rear-wheel and front wheel drive applications and to market the IsoTorque to manufacturers for use in their future vehicle platforms, including automotive and truck fleets.

3) to design and build prototype units of our IsoTorque differential for off-road uses, such as integration in the drive wheel assemblies of 21 SC mining shuttle cars under a development contract we have with a remanufacturer of mining and associated industrial equipment.  In addition, we will be looking at other off-road uses.

4) to enhance the design of, build prototype units for, and evaluate the operating performance and efficiencies of our hydraulic pump for commercial and industrial applications and to market the Torvec hydraulic pump to industrial manufacturers of hydraulic pumps and associated manufacturers.

In addition to the activities to be undertaken by us to implement our plan of operation detailed above, we may expand our marketing activities depending upon future circumstances and developments. Information regarding the Company and all of our inventions, including regular updates on technological and business developments, can be found on our recently upgraded website, www.torvec.com.

(C) Company Revenue and Expenses

Three Month Periods Ended June 30, 2012 and 2011

No revenue or gross profit was generated during either of the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 or June 30, 2011.
 
Research and development expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2012 amounted to $260,000 as compared to $216,000 for the comparable period in 2011. Non-cash stock-based compensation expense attributable to stock options and warrants for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $42,000, compared with $0 for the three months ended June 30, 2011, resulting primarily from option grants made to the engineering team in the latter part of 2011 and early 2012.  Excluding the non-cash stock-based compensation expense, research and development expenses for the first three months of 2012 amounted to $218,000, essentially equal to the expense reflected in the same period in 2011.  Higher expenses for personnel-related costs and an increase in expenses for various supplies and computer equipment in 2012 were offset by lower expenses for contributed shareholder services and development materials.
 
General and administrative expense for the three months ended June 30, 2012 amounted to $778,000 compared to $661,000 for 2011.  Non-cash stock-based compensation expense attributable to stock options and warrants for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $438,000, an increase of $59,000 from $379,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 that primarily resulted from the shareholder-approved modification of expiration terms for options that had been previously granted to certain directors on our board.  Excluding the non-cash stock-based compensation expense, general and administrative expense for the second quarter of 2012 amounted to $340,000 compared to $282,000 in 2011.  The increase of $58,000, or 21%, resulted from the timing of our annual shareholders meeting which was held in the second quarter in 2012 as compared with the first quarter in 2011, and higher expenditures for trade shows, office supplies and computer networking, offset in part by lower expenses for contributed shareholder services.

 
23

 
 
The loss from operations for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 was $1,038,000, compared with a loss from operations in 2011 of $877,000.  The change in other income from $1,000 in 2011 to $27,000 in 2012 was primarily a result of a $22,000 gain on the sale of a fixed asset and higher interest income from higher cash balances.  Preferred stock dividends amounted to $67,000 and $68,000 in 2012 and 2011, respectively.
 
The net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 was $1,078,000 as compared to a net loss for the same period in 2011 of $944,000.  The weighted average diluted common shares outstanding amounted to 45,710,000 and 45,698,000 for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  Diluted net loss per common share for each of the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $.02.

Six Month Periods Ended June 30, 2012 and 2011

In March 2012, we hired Dr. William Mark McVea, one of the world's foremost drive-train and gear technology experts, as our new chief technology officer. Dr. McVea received his Ph.D. in Engineering from Purdue University and his degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology. Prior to joining the Company, he was chief engineer and president of KBE+, Inc., a group of consulting engineers engaged in the design and development of gear trains and power transmission devices. Dr. McVea also develops and presents professional development seminars to practicing graduate engineers, primarily working for tier-one suppliers to, or directly for, international automotive manufacturers.
 
Revenue for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 was $60,000, compared with $30,000 for the six month period ended June 30, 2011.  The revenue that was generated in each period resulted from the completion of separate milestones on a prototype development contract for a mining car differential.  The cost of goods sold in 2012 was $45,000, or 75% of revenue, compared with $17,000 in 2011, or 57% of revenue.  Gross profit for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 was $15,000, or 25%, compared with $13,000, or 43% in the comparable period in 2011.

Research and development expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2012 amounted to $480,000 as compared to $418,000 for the comparable period in 2011. Non-cash stock-based compensation expense attributable to stock options and warrants for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $60,000, compared with $0 for the six months ended June 30, 2011, resulting primarily from option grants made to the engineering team in the latter part of 2011 and early 2012.  Excluding the non-cash stock-based compensation expense, research and development expenses for the first six months of 2012 amounted to $420,000, essentially equal to the expense reflected in the comparable six-month period in 2011.  An increase in costs for outside consulting services and various supplies and computer equipment in 2012 was offset by a lower expense for contributed shareholder services and lower material costs.
 
General and administrative expense for the first six months of 2012 amounted to $1,332,000 compared to $1,272,000 for 2011.  Non-cash stock-based compensation expense attributable to stock options and warrants for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $705,000, an increase of $22,000 from $683,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 that primarily resulted from the shareholder-approved modification of expiration terms for options that had been previously granted to certain directors on our board.  Excluding the non-cash stock-based compensation expense, general and administrative expense for the first six months of 2012 amounted to $627,000 compared to $589,000 in 2011.  The increase of $38,000, or 6%, is mainly related to higher personnel-related costs and external legal fees, offset in part by a lower expense for contributed shareholder services and lower accounting-related fees.

The loss from operations for the first six months of 2012 was $1,797,000, compared with a loss from operations in 2011 of $1,677,000.  Other income for 2012 was $33,000, compared with other income of $2,000 in 2011, an increase of 31,000  that resulted primarily from a $22,000 gain on the sale of a fixed asset and higher interest income from higher cash balances.  Preferred stock dividends amounted to $134,000 and $136,000 in 2012 and 2011, respectively.
 
The net loss attributable to common stockholders for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 was $1,898,000 as compared to a net loss for the same period in 2011 of $1,811,000.  The weighted average diluted common shares outstanding amounted to 45,705,000 and 45,694,000 for the first six months of 2012 and 2011, respectively.  Diluted net loss per common share for each of the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $.04.

 (D) Liquidity and Capital Resources

In September 2011, we raised $6,500,000 in gross proceeds through a private placement of a new series of preferred stock.  We issued a total of 16,250,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock at a price of $0.40 per share.  As part of the same private placement, the investors received common stock purchase warrants entitling them to purchase up to an aggregate total of 1,625,000 common shares at 80 percent of the volume weighted average price of our common stock based on the 10 trading days immediately preceding the date of exercise.  The warrants are immediately exercisable and have a 10 year term.  We intend to use the funds raised to continue developing and intensify the marketing of our IsoTorque® differential and our Torvec hydraulic pump technologies for the automotive and commercial pump industries, including our anticipated entry into the automotive aftermarket with our patented differential.  We recorded approximately $106,000 in direct expenses associated with the transaction, consisting primarily of external legal costs, resulting in net proceeds realized of $6,394,000.

As of June 30, 2012, cash and cash equivalents totaled $4,847,000, a decrease of $1,092,000 from the beginning of the year.  During the six months ended June 30, 2012, we used $1,060,000 of cash in operating activities, an increase of $85,000 over the same period in 2011.  A reported net loss of $1,764,000 for the first six months of 2012, offset in part mainly by non-cash stock-based compensation of $765,000, resulted in cash used in operating activities amounting to $1,060,000 for the six month period ended June 30, 2012.   In 2011, a reported net loss of $1,675,000, offset in part mainly by $833,000 of non-cash expenditures related to the issuance of common stock, warrants and stock options, and stockholder contribution of services, resulted in cash used in operating activities of $975,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

We used a net of $1,000 in cash for investing activities in the first half of 2012, including $23,000 for the purchase of capital assets, offset in part by cash generated from the sale of a fixed asset. During the second quarter of 2012, we also entered into a promissory note for approximately $154,000 for the purchase of various fixed assets and supplies.  During the first half of 2011, we didn’t use any cash for investing activities.

During the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we used $31,000 and $7,000, respectively, for financing activities, primarily as a result of payments on outstanding notes payable.

During the six month period ended June 30, 2012, we issued 15,328 shares of common stock related to the conversion of 10,000 shares of Preferred B stock and related accrued dividends.  During the six month period ended June 30, 2011, we issued a total of 14,721 shares of common stock related to the conversion of 6,250 shares of Preferred A stock and certain accrued dividends.

Current Cash Outlook

For the period from September 1996 (inception) through June 30, 2012, we have accumulated a deficit of $61,463,000.  At June 30, 2012 we have stockholders’ equity of $4,578,000, current liabilities of $543,000 and working capital of $4,335,000. We have been dependent upon equity financing and advances from stockholders to meet our obligations and sustain operations.  In September 2011, we raised $6,500,000 in gross proceeds through a private placement of a new class of preferred stock.  The proceeds from this transaction are being used to support the ongoing development and marketing of our core technologies and product initiatives.  Presently, we anticipate that our operating cash requirements for the full year of 2012 will be in the range of approximately $2,000,000.  In addition, we are expecting to spend approximately $200,000 on capital expenditures for the development of in-house testing equipment and approximately $100,000 on payments to reduce notes payable balances during the full year of 2012.  We believe that based upon our current cash position and the current outlook for our business operations, we have sufficient cash to continue operations through June 30, 2013.

 (E) Critical Accounting Policies

Revenue Recognition

Our terms provide that customers are obligated to pay for products sold to them within a specified number of days from the date that title to the products is transferred to the customers. Our standard terms are typically net 30 days. We recognize revenue when transfer of title occurs, risk of ownership passes to a customer at the time of shipment or delivery depending on the terms of the agreement with a particular customer and collection is reasonably assured. The sale price of our products is substantially fixed and determinable at the date of the sale based upon purchase orders generated by a customer and accepted by us.

We occasionally enter into prototype development contracts with customers.  In such cases, revenue is recognized using either (a) the proportional effort method based on the relationship of costs incurred to date to the total estimated cost to complete a contract, or (b) where appropriate, the milestone method, if milestones are clearly identifiable and substantive.  In January 2011, we adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2010-17, “Revenue Recognition — Milestone Method (Topic 605): Milestone Method of Revenue Recognition — a consensus of the FASB EITF”.  Our adoption of this pronouncement did not have a significant impact on our financial statements.

Stock-Based Compensation

FASB ASC 718-10 requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized as compensation expense over the requisite service period (generally the vesting period) in the consolidated financial statements based on their fair values on the grant date.  The impact of forfeitures that may occur prior to vesting is also estimated and considered in the amount recognized. In addition, the realization of tax benefits in excess of amounts recognized for financial reporting purposes will be recognized as a financing activity in accordance with FASB ASC 718-10.

No tax benefits were attributed to the stock-based compensation expense because a valuation allowance was maintained for substantially all net deferred tax assets. We elected to adopt the alternative method of calculating the historical pool of windfall tax benefits as permitted by FASB ASC 718-10-65 (previously known as FASB Staff Position (FSP) No. SFAS 123(R)-c, “Transition Election Related to Accounting for the Tax Effects of Share-Based Payment Awards”).  This is a simplified method to determine the pool of windfall tax benefits that is used in determining the tax effects of stock compensation in the results of operations and cash flow reporting for awards that were outstanding as of the adoption of FASB ASC 718-10.

At times prior to 2011, we have accounted for the settlement of commission arrangements to non-employee consultants, directors, executives and certain administrative personnel with the issuance of our business consulting shares under FASB ASC 505 (previously known as FASB Statement 123(R) “Share Based Payment”), provided that there are sufficient shares available under the business consulting plan. Under FASB ASC 505, we measured commission arrangements at the fair value of the equity instruments issued. In the event that there are insufficient shares available to settle the obligation, we will follow the provisions of FASB ASC 815-40 (previously known as EITF 00-19 “Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company’s Own Stock”). Under FASB ASC 815-40, we will record a liability instrument for the resulting changes in fair value from the date incurred to the end of each reporting period until such liability is satisfied.
